The King of Fighters ALLSTAR Tier List

King of Fighters All-Star is a mobile version of the already popular action and fighting game, King of Fighters. This allows players to download the app for free in any app store, and choose from their favorite characters. The King of Fighters ALLSTAR Tier List can help them choose the best character.

Why Play King of Fighters?

In some games, understanding the skill level of each character can be vital to winning or losing. A good example would be a top-down strategy game like “League of Legends” or the mobile addiction “Clash of Clans”. In this case, the game is strictly based on the players’ skills in both matchmaking and bot fights. Multiplayer games usually run a skill-based matchmaking system for each match to be fair and just.

King of Fighters All-Star includes chapters and stories that have you fight specific enemies to face off at the end of each chapter. Like Mortal Kombat, the stories hold fights and progress your skills as a player.

The King of Fighters ALLSTAR Tier List

Even though ranks are based on player skills, we can still create a tier list and separate the characters into groups. Starting with tier S, as the most powerful, and lower as the list goes on from Tier A, B, C, etc.

S Tier

‘S’ tier may mean “Superb” or “Super” and may originate from academic grading in Japan. This is the highest level possible.

Geese XIV

Moonslicer carries Geese to the top of the rankings this time. It’s just that good of a move to set up and bridge combos. This allows Geese to move in on the opponent without worrying too much about the punishment.

Jin Hoodie

Jin has every tool needed to succeed but he becomes a challenge to master, especially against good competition.


Kazuya is a fighter for players who are sure of their skills. His moves are very committal – often leaving him vulnerable if you whiff some combos. If you can properly execute them, however, the damage will be there.

A Tier

Orochi Shermie 97

Character in The King of Fighters series who is a member of the Orochi Team (temporarily under the disguised team name, “New Faces Team” in KOF ’97). She is one of the Four Heavenly Kings of Orochi who is the dark counterpart to Benimaru Nikaido.

Ash 03

Ash Crimson’s first appearance was in The King of Fighters 2003 as leader of its Hero Team. He employs a personal fighting style that involves pyrokinesis with green flames.

Lady Chang

She is ironically fast and mobile. She can stun her enemies and put them into a distracting trance. Chang’s striker skill has her stunning everyone for 1.7 seconds just like Yashiro, it’s pretty standard. However, her striker links are crazy. The first one, with Chang 94, she gains 1 second of decreased cooldown. This already puts her in a giant advantage over her peers as she starts with an almost 10 seconds cooldown instead of 11 seconds.

B Tier

Blue Mary 97

Blue Mary is a character who heavily relies on grapples and counters to rack up damage and is also famous for being a hassle character against lesser skilled players.

Ling Schoolgirl 

Hinako is a kind girl who wishes to prove that girls can also practice sumo. She is somewhat shy, but also a very loyal friend. Although her blond hair and facial features indicate her Russian descent, nonetheless she considers herself to be purely Japanese. She can Ignore Weight – For a girl of her size, she can lift, push and throw men as big and heavy as Maxima.

K 99 

Pyrokinesis and translocation. Due to Kyo Kusanagi’s DNA, he was infused with, K’ can create and manipulate fire out of thin air but only from his right hand. K’ can create fireballs, infuse his kicks and punches with fire and create pillars of fire with his body as seen with his “Hyper Chain Drive” super. However, he is not immune to other types of fire nor able to control fires he didn’t create. In fact, due to him not being a descendant of the Kusanagi clan, he doesn’t have total control of his own flames either, which is why he is forced to wear a special glove to protect himself from his own fire and to help him suppress and control it.

The King of Fighters ALLSTAR Tier List

Players enjoy viewing the stats and finding which character is best for them. This holds true in the game’s saying that there is a “perfect balance of fighters” for anyone. Even though the game is based on the player’s skill, and they can choose any character they please, gamers appreciate the tier system and underlying stats to help guide them in creating a well-balanced team.
